Radware and NetScreen Team to Provide Robust, Highly Available VPN Solution
Sunnyvale, CA - March 3, 2003 - Radware (NASDAQ; RDWR), a leading provider of intelligent application switching (IAS), ensuring availability, performance and the integrity of networked applications across the enterprise, and NetScreen Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: NSCN) today announced the two companies have teamed to provide a robust and scalable solution that provides high availability virtual private networks (VPN) among multiple Internet access points and service providers.
The solution includes the combination of NetScreen's integrated network security appliances and Radware's LinkProof application switch, each element tested and certified to ensure interoperability. NetScreen's appliances secure network infrastructures, remote offices and mobile workers with VPN, firewall and denial of service capabilities. NetScreen's appliances are designed to be highly reliable and employ multiple methods to ensure redundancy and availability.
Radware's LinkProof application switch complements the security infrastructure resiliency provided by NetScreen's appliances by providing Internet connection availability. LinkProof enables fast content delivery and availability of Internet access for enterprises with multiple connections and/or Internet providers, by performing inbound and outbound load balancing. Radware's LinkProof aggregates two or more ISP links and provides high availability connectivity by detecting failures and by redirecting traffic to the best performing and healthiest link. LinkProof enables customers to reduce costs through link optimization, bandwidth management, and by simplifying multi-link implementation.
Enterprise customers using the solution can benefit from highly available and highly secure virtual private networks. The solution ensures that even if an ISP fails, local and remote network users can access the network and the Internet/WAN without compromising VPN protection.
"Like NetScreen, we recognize that 24x7 access to corporate networks and the Internet for both internal and remote VPN users is becoming critical for many organizations," said Arik Ziv, vice president of business development for Radware. "Radware has more then three years experience in the load balancing and link traffic management space with more than 2000 installations. Together with NetScreen, we can provide our customers a true best-of-breed, highly available VPN solution."
